Great grey owl in Belarus

For photos of Great Gray Owl in Belarus there are two of the best places:

Bielaviežškaja Pušča National park

we will visit  Dzikoje, one of the biggest fens in Europe — a habitat that barely  exists in Western Europe. Preserved in its natural state, it is a  breeding ground for Great Grey Owl

Vyhanaščanskaje  Reserve, a wood and mire complex.This destination offers the densest population of Great Grey Owls in Belarus; in good years up to 20 pairs  nest here. Unlike the birds in Scandinavia, which are nomadic and may  migrate south in winter, Belarusian owls stay year around in the same  area.
